The promotional livery on this vehicle focused on "Dino Jaws", an amazing exhibition from the Natural History Museum featuring life-size animatronic dinosaur heads. This event ended at the Centre for Life back in April, so the opportunity is being used to refresh the current bus and receive a further promotional livery to support the "Big Days Out" campaign. As such, this vehicle has now been repainted into a navy blue base livery.

This vehicle has been stripped of "Cobalt Clipper" branding and has received a promotional livery for Go North East's "Big Days Out" campaign. The campaign, which was originally introduced in the summer of 2017 but will now be ongoing for the foreseeable future, has seen Go North East partner up with a number of attractions and businesses to bring its customers some great family offers. Customers who buy a £10 Family Day Ticket are eligible for discounts at venues involved in the partnership. This bus is one of four which will receive a promotional livery for the campaign - each example is different, with this one promoting the Centre for Life. The livery intends to raise awareness of this campaign and the company's Family Day Ticket, which permits travel for up to two adults and three children under 16 in all zones. The introduction of this campaign has also seen the ticket price reduce from £13 to £10 on-bus (matching the cheaper price previously on the mobile app).
